2017 Communications Workshop

2017 Communications Workshop
Tuesday, 17 and Wednesday, 18 October 2017 at CMI, Prague (Czech Republic)

EURAMET and CMI Communications Workshop on 'How best to communicate the revised SI?'

The International System of Units (SI) is the present form of the metric system formally adopted by the 11th Conférence Générale des Poids et Mesures (CGPM), in 1960. It is used globally in more than 100 countries. Provided the experimental data on the seven constants are satisfactory, the 26th CGPM in 2018 is expected to accept a resolution to revise the SI.

The possible revision of the SI is an extraordinary opportunity to communicate the importance of metrology and the future SI. This task is similar for many NMIs and DIs in Europe. Therefore, EURAMET will organise a two-day workshop on 'How best to communicate the revised SI?', hosted by CMI, the Czech National Metrology Institute.

The preliminary agenda for the workshop is

Day 1: 17 October 2017; 09:30 - 17:30 CEST
- Introduction to the planned revision of the SI
- Information about the BIPM Brand Book 'Future Revision of the SI'
- Workshop on how to convey the new SI at school
- Best practice examples of communicating the SI

Day 2: 18 October 2017; 09:00 - 16:30 CEST
- Practical sessions on how and when to communicate the future revision of the SI
